First indications 'not good' for Fillon - senator

PARIS (Reuters) - The first indications from polling booths are "not good" for conservative challenger Francois Fillon, French senator and key Fillon supporter Roger Karoutchi told reporters on Sunday.

"If I had a good feeling about it I would not be drinking Coca-Cola but that is what I am drinking now," he said.

"The first indications are not good," he said.

He added that he did not expect Fillon would support either centrist Emmanuel Macron or far-right Marine Le Pen in the second round in two weeks.
